Steven Ma's Sacrifice for his Art
Steven Ma has been busy filming for new series "Predicting Fate" recently and for the first time, he has dressed up as a woman. He says that this time he has made a huge sacrifice to tie in with the plot, but he is an actor with a good professional conduct. He adds that he has over ten different images in the series and one of them is dressing as a woman. Trying this look for the first time in his career, he did take part in the image design and put on his own make-up. He laughs that he is prettier than Brigitte Lin.
Steven says that he was a little heavy handed with the female make up so it makes him look too pale. The crew all laughed that his appearance was too scary. Also, Steven has to put on fake breasts, that were supposed to be made from water balloons, but as the crew forgot to order them, they suggested resorted to using papayas instead. This looked too exaggerated though, so the idea was scrapped in the end.
Steven says that wearing a bra for the first time, even though it was just stuffed with cotton wool, he still found it very hard work. He laughs that he has a 36 inch bust. Asked if he was afraid this would affect his image, he says that he never felt that he was a handsome guy anyway and the most important thing is this is needed for the story.
